Can you imagine what the feeding frenzy was like where that guitar landed? The fists must have been flying.

I have seen fights break out at concerts over guitar pics, drumsticks and believe it or not...bibles (Stryper). So you can count on some blood being spilled over that guitar! :shock:

Yeah, that knock you bloody cold man! It wouldn't surprise me if the axe didn't make it out in one piece either.

Just imagine the Strat Dweezil Zappa inherited from his father, Jimi's Stratocaster flambe' from the 68 Miami Rock Festival, total SCORE!

Both links are to the same video, Des!

Wouldn't wanna be nearby when that guitar landed, that's for sure!

I seriously don't know what to make of Zakk anymore.
Sometimes he'll do something and I'll have nothing but admiration for the guy, like buying those kids guitars in store vists, then he trashes a bar, or say...runs head first into a Marshall stack while being cheered on by a bunch of idiots. Then I'll listen to him play and he's awesome with Ozzy and solo, then I'll hear something by BLS and it's pure pentatonic fretboard wankery and I can't even listen to it.
One of those goons shouts "That's rock n roll right there!". If that's what rock and roll is I no longer want anything to do with it. +)


Quite the paradox of a character.

Friends went to the concert in Melbourne where he threw the guitar, I couldn't go I was mega pissed off.

Apparently the guy had to get escorted out by security and had blood all over his face.

He does the same thing on the last BLS DVD, but when he tosses it out in the crowd, the roadies are standing there at the barricade making sure the fans pass it back up to the front and he takes it and keeps playing. The crowd does not get to keep it on the BLS DVD.

Jesus, I am at a loss for words.

While I admire Zakk I am not sure what to think of his alcohol fueled behavior. He is looking so silly crashing through a marshall stack. It just looks so put on. I think he is becoming somewhat of a parody of himself. I am not judging the man. I wish him and his family the best. I hope his act is just that, an act. :oops:

Classic rock behaviour such as, trashing hotel rooms, riding bikes through hotels and driving cars into swimming pools?
I don't exactly condone that stuff either, but these people weren't surrounded by chanting idiots, or on film, and didn't launch themselves head first into anything. I think there's quite a difference. He's making himself look bad.

Wow. He tackles a helpless Marshall stack... brave man. :lol:
However, that kinda pales by comparison to the incident at Mother's Music in Winnipeg where he and Nick Catanese decided it would be fun to play Star Wars with a pair of acoustic guitars... one Yamaha and one Peavey. Niiice. :P
I have a piece of the shrapnel... a four-inch long, 1/2" wide sliver of wood.

A warning to sensitive viewers, you may wish to look away now... :lol:

Yep... Zakk and his guitarist Nick destroyed the guitars using them as lightsabres.
I was actually invited to go to this "private" meet-and-greet event, but I didn't go. I think someone at the store has either video or a photo of the "moment of impact".

Yeah, one of them was probably mine. I ordered a black RR5 about two years ago. I couldn't really notice it under the store lights, but when I got home, I could really see a severe "blushing" under the finish (blushing: moisture under the clearcoat causing whitish streaking) as well as the pickguard being scratched. I returned it and asked for a new one.
When my new one finally came in, I inspected it very closely. There was one or two very minor blushes that were hardly noticeable (I figure the whole batch must have been affected). So, as I was about to leave, I looked at the back wall and there was my first one, hanging up for sale for about $400 less than I paid for it. I think it may still be there.

Giant, drunken, bearded, ripped madman.

Kind of reminds me of a Norse God.

I still remember Zakk as a skinny, clean-shaven 20-year-old with waist-length bleach-blonde hair and long thumbnails when he landed the Ozzy gig... hell, even on seeing Zakk's promo photo in 1987, Ozzy thought "God, not another blonde guy with a Les Paul".
Any die-hard ZW fan not familiar with his past that far back and seeing photos from that era may well have their world shattered!
